Polyamorous Definition

 What is the definition of a ‘Polyamorous’ person?


The dictionary version of the Polyamorous Definition ….

Polyamory n : is the non-possessive, honest, responsible and ethical
philosophy and practice of loving multiple people simultaneously. Polyamory
emphasizes consciously choosing how many partners one wishes to be involved
with rather than accepting social norms which dictate loving only one person
at a time. Polyamory is from the root words Poly (meaning “many”) and Amour
(meaning “love”); hence “many loves” or Polyamory.

Polyamorous Definition? The first thing to understand is that anyone who is Polyamorous is not just interested in having sex with lots of different people.  This is generally a common mis-conception and generally misunderstood by the public.

To be polyamorous simply means that you are not monogamous in your relationships.  However, poly people and their lovers will generally have many relationships and believe you can love and have meaningful relationships with more than just one person.   Many believe that monogomy is not natural for them and could lead people to be unhappy and even cheat in the long term. That simply is how the polyamorous definition is properly explained. Polyamoruous people practice Polyamory (see dictionary meaning above) and are also known as Poly people.

Here’s a good video explaining the polyamorous definition in more detail for you.


One way I like to describe the polyamorous definition is that we will love two parents, many brothers and sisters, friends and equally lovers whereas monogamists will only love one partner at any one time. Polyamory simply means being able to love many partners at the same time.

If you think you might be Polyamorous then there are a few things to know about ‘poly’ people and what they nearly always insist upon;

  • Trust
  • Openness and Honesty
  • A certain set of rules that are unique to each relationship or family
